Activism comes in multiple forms. Art can be a form of self-expression, where the expression comes in the activist flavor. Many nonbelievers in Bangladesh write for their cause.

In solidarity and support of their activism, others perform musical performances for them. The composer Dorian Wallace did a premier of a new work.

Wallace dedicated the work to those who have been killed. The Bangladeshi bloggers being killed for words, for ideas, for expressing their views, and seeking to do so freely.

Religious terrorists who killed secular writers or bloggers. The cello concerto is called manusa. It incorporates Bengali rhythms and music played at some funerals.
